The end of the calendar year provides a good time to take stock of Americans’ religion, including the way in which it remains highly intertwined with politics.
Protestants continue to make up the largest religious group in America, totaling 49% of U.S. adults interviewed as part of Gallup’s Daily tracking in 2017. Catholics are the next-largest group, at 23% of the population, with Mormons accounting for about 2%. This means that about three-quarters of Americans, overall, identify with a Christian faith.
